  1. Hey there folks, I'm new to kayaking in the salt as well as saltwater fishing in general. I made plans with some friends to go kayak fishing out of Waterford CT. Mostly going for porgies maybe some tautog, will be staying within a mile of shore. The question is what resources do you guys use to check conditions? I really don't know much about waves, tides, winds, etc and I'm trying to find some resources that will help with that. Do you guys check for wave height or tides before going out? Is there anything to look out for particularly? How windy is too windy? Do solunar tables actually matter? Not sure if it really helps but two of us are in tamarack angler 100s and one in a sit-inside field and stream fishing kayak. We have all kayaked before but I'm the only one who has been in the ocean and in this area. Any advice helps, just really trying to have some (safe) fun and fill a cooler or two. Thank you all.
  2. Ive always wanted to fly fish for shad but I don't know the rig to do it. Im looking for something for the Connecticut River and its tributary's.
  3. Hello all, this is my 1st post here on Stripers Online. Intro- New to the forum, not new to fishing. I live in CT and have been fishing since I was 8 years old (now 34). I'd consider myself an amateur fisherman. More knowledgeable than your average joe, but not even close to a pro by any means. My greatest experience of all comes from American Shad fishing. Been fishing most seasons along the Farmington and CT river. I just started fishing again this year (thanks Covid19) after not going the past 5 years (life priorities). Reasons for my post (few things) I'd like to make some friends with some locals. It sucks when your friends aren't as passionate about fishing :(. I am itching to go fish for stripers and blues from the surf and really WANT a Van Staal VSB 150 (bailed), and according to the rules I need at least 7 posts. The last time I fished for stripers was in RI along the breachways using diamond jigs, but mostly caught bluefish (actually all of them were bluefish). I love the fight of the bluefish, but want to catch some bass. I left all my fishing gear when I left RI (breakup with fiance) so I am restarting my fishing tackle collection. Anyway, here are a few pics of some shad my dad landed the first time we went out this spring (in the first 30 min of fishing!) 3/4oz weight with a red/white willow leaf
  4. Remember that they are just a stupid fish, and they will eat a hook with padding from a box spring... Not much action from the material, but holds a good profile, only takes a few minutes to tie, and can be colored to match any bait around! Materials consist of sidewall padding from a box spring, lead wire, WTP eyes, and sharpies. Let's see some more flies with unconventional materials.
  5. Hi, I'm planning to fish at Hammonnasset soon, and I was wondering if anyone could for me helpful tips like the size hooks you like using there, the rigs you use there, and the best spots. thanks for helping
